BINTM's Anne: Elle Macpherson is encouraging
Elle Macpherson is very encouraging, according to 'Britain and Ireland's Next Top Model' contestant Anne Winterburn.
The 23-year-old professional model - who was axed on last night's episode (13.08.12) of the Sky Living reality show - thinks Elle's helpful advice was a welcome break amid all the tough feedback the girls received on the show.
The self-confessed punk rocker said: ''She was really nice she was really comforting... When we were doing our makeovers I actually cried because they'd bleached my hair ten times and I was there for twelve hours and my head got really sore.
''She said, 'You're doing really well... Could you do another dye, it's not quite white enough!' She's just really encouraging.
''She gave some good feedback. For me I try and show my waist off and try and keep my legs away from the camera - because Julien [Macdonald] thought I had chunky thighs!''
Anne revealed the elimination room could be brutal and said she faced some harsh criticism a few weeks into the show which didn't make the final cut.
She exclaimed: ''I walked up in front of the judges and straight away they were like, 'What are you wearing, why have you styled your hair that way?'
''And for five minutes they criticized everything I was doing! Then they saw my photo and were like, 'Eurgh!'''
Anne knew her time was up after two continuous weeks in the bottom two, but feels she may have sabotaged her own chances by admitting it to the judges.
The edgy contestant said: ''I'm so annoyed. I knew I could do better, I just blew it really. It makes sense and I told the judges before, 'I know I'm going home tonight'.
''I think that's why they thought, 'Well, we'll send you home then!' ''
